Unexpected shutdown

I have the following setting for my power options:

1. Low battery action: sleep
2. Critical battery action: hibernate

Unfortunately my laptop never goes to the sleep mode. It directly goes in the hibernate mode.

Once I resume from hibernation the laptop shuts down automatically after coming to the log-in page.

Check your power settings. What levels have you got set for low battery and critical battery? In percentage terms, critical needs to be set at a lower value than low.

Critical: 5%

Low: 17% (raised to address this issue)

Note: Battery might be the issue, as it used to give me 2 1/2 hour of run time under normal use and now it gives me around 1 1/2.
